Who Are the New Dark Avengers?

Norman Osborn and his team of evil Avengers are back in November 2011.

This can't be good for the heroes. Marvel just released a teaser for the New Dark Avengers.

Despite Norman Osborn's downfall after Dark Reign, if you've read the recent OSBORN miniseries, you know he managed to land on his feet. How he'll manage to create another team of Dark Avengers is something we'll have to wait to see. You can bet it won't be good for the Avengers.

Being that this is a teaser from Marvel, we could start guessing as to who is standing behind Norman. At least this time the characters aren't completely blackened out. All I know is that with Bendis and Deodato on board for this, it's going to be fun times for comic readers.

This takes place in New Avengers #18.

Hulk's son, some guy in a Hawkeye outfit, and someone else.

@spiderbat87: The Dark Avengers was an awesome series! It was highly critically acclaimed as well. 
 
 
I'm gonna go for the obvious and guess Skaar? No idea for the other two

@spiderbat87: I'm not alone in thinking that Dark Avengers was the only good Avengers book during Dark Reign. But I don't see how it will translate in the current Marvel U.

That's not just "some guy in a Hawkeye outfit".  I'd know Harvey Birdman's kid sidekick (ummm...y'know...that kid who looked like Birdman...just younger...) anywhere!!!

I wonder when Dark Secret Avengers and The New Dark Secret Avengers are coming out?

I do hope Sentry returns in this. Although I really can't see that happening. I preffered him as a hero with problems rather than a crazed drug addict. Great writing there Bendis.

I think that other guy is in iron-man armor 
 
@Baddamdog: I thought it was a load of pish I have no faith in bendis producing something good with this ether and come on how many avengers teams do we really need?
Posted by kenseven

i'm guessing Skaar is the big brute looming behind Osborn.  a dark "Hulk" for the Dark Avengers.
  
I feel it's a little early, but if Osborn is really back, I'll be interested to read about his place in the Marvel Universe post-Siege.

I liked the Dark Avengers...I bet they link up with the Revengers...

@spiderbat87: Seriously Iron Man armor?  No it's a form of a Hulk (Most likely Skaar), a random Hawkeye (Most likely Barney Barton his brother), and a random Iron Fist (Most likely Steel Serpent)

If Osborn convinces Flash Thompson to join his team, I may have to read it.

Actually Dark Avengers was Marvel's number 1 seller.

I love Osborn, I'll definitely check this one out.

WHY, WHY DOES BENDIS KEEP GETTING WORK!?

 
 
Terrible idea, but that goes without saying. Dark Avengers/Siege is the worst comic series ever written, so I expect nothing more from this series. Let's see who Bendis alienates this time!

They are back!

My money is on Anti-Venom; check out the screwy face pattern, it's very similar.

The eyes too are very Anti-Venom, and with his appearance in the (sighs) Revengers; it seems Bendis has taken an interest in him. 
 
IV123 is gonna be maaaaaaaad lol

Can't Marvel come up with something new? What I mean by new is Original. Something Never Done Before. Not their  "catch a repeat of what we done 2 years ago in a few months!"

Edited by Jonny_Anonymous

Avengers, New Avengers, Secret Avengers, Young Avengers, Dark Avengers, Dark Young Avengers, New Dark Avengers, Revengers... any more for any more?

Posted by xanthiss

CRAP! More of Marvel's Crap. How many crappy Avengers titles can they come out with? Why not just have one book with good stories? Why not bring back Dead Avengers too...yeah zombies are totally original. The thing i don't get, if it was successful last time why was the series cancelled? 

Posted by emmbro30

Again I say, Marvel REALLY needs to get rid of Bendis.  I am to the point of cancelling my subscriptions because of his ridiculous stories.

It did. It sold suprisingly well, according to what I heard. At least here

Skaar, Bullseye (or Daken), and I can't tell who the one on the left is.

Posted by frozenedge

I thing the big guy in the back might be Hulk's second son who supposedly died, Hawkeye is probably Clint's brother Barney, and I don't know about the other guy

Posted by Herx

Howard the Duck and MODOCK :P 
 
well it would be unexpected :P

Edited by Kalakarinth

You can tell it's Iron Fist by hanging thread of his mask behind his head.  Also the shape of the ears and eyes are the same as Iron Fist.  The costume looks similar to Iron Fist's white costume as well.  So yeah as I said earlier it's Skaar, Steel Serpent, and Barney Barton.

See this is what I don't understand, why are people like Wonder Man and Osborn attacking the NEW Avengers instead of THE Avengers? Is it because they're too afraid to take on Thor and Iron Man compared to Thing and Luke Cage? I mean seriously, the only reason we have to the New Avengers is so Bendis can throw the characters we actually WANT to see on The Avengers so he can put his little Spider-Woman and Sentry--I'm mean, Red Hulk on the team instead when obviously characters like Ms. Marvel deserve to be on the team more....

come on marvel come up with NEW NAMES. YOU'RE GOING TO GRIND YOUR SERIES TO DUST LIKE THIS. too many avenger titles. bring back masters of evil, sinister six, anything. i'll even take a paste pot pete title now than an avenger series!!

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous
@Gambler: Where's that from?
Edited by Kalakarinth

Skaar's arms don't have thread.  (Or Maestro incase it's Maestro)  Iron Fist's mask does and that mask looks exactly like Iron Fist's mask especially with the thread.  +It's not Iron Man seeing as how he doesn't have a round head in the Iron Man suit and the eyes don't look like that.  Or the ears.

Posted by Shadowdoggy
Maybe it'll be some of the "revengers" we're going to see in New Avengers before then 
maybe Atlas is the big guy? Or Goliath? 
 
@spiderbat87

it's from Age of X

How would the Avengers from Age of X be the new Dark Avengers...or are you joking? O_o

And this is why I am proud to say that my shelf is a Bendis-free zone.  Dark Avengers might have been the only good title during the whole Dark Reign mess but that isn't saying a lot.   
 
And even that book was a mess.  Bendis wrote a lot of people out of character, particularly Karla Sofen.  And he ruined the Sentry in that book and in New Avengers before that, turning what could have been a promising character into a complete irredeemable mess whom Marvel had to choice but to kill off since he was so damaged that there was really no way any writer could fix him after what Bendis did.  Not to mention what he did to my favorite, Ares.  Yeah because the God of War is going to bow down and do whatever some wacko says and alienate himself from his son because he is just that stupid. 
 
Marvel really  needs to get rid of Bendis, snap.  He's why I haven't read anything with Ms. Marvel in it for a long time since the only book she is currently in is New Avengers, which I refuse to pick up.  From what I gather though I'm not missing anything, since she's basically been reduced to wallpaper.  So much for being Marvel's #1 female superhero the way Bendis is treating her. 
 
Did I mention I have never forgiven this hack for what he did to the Scarlet Witch? 
 
Yeah, please fire him.

Bendis is the reason Ms. Marvel sucks now and why her series got cancelled because he wanted his Spider-Woman to be Marvel's prominent super-heroine even though Ms. Marvel was CREATED for that role in the first place....seriously, Look. At. Her. Name. Ms. MARVEL
Posted by Enzeru

I hope Anti-Venom won't be in Normans new Avengers, because I believe that Bendis hates me and that's probably the main reason why he destroyed my favorite character, Sentry. I also like Anti-Venom and there might be a chance that Bendis keeps destroying.

Exactly.  I have noticed that too.  Ms. Marvel in my opinion should be in the main Avengers book with Thor, Iron Man, et al, but she's not.  Instead Bendis's baby Spider-Woman is there.  Seriously?!  I mean Jessica is an alright character but do we have to keep pushing her while shunting Carol aside like used socks in order to boost her? 
 
And heck even Jessica does some questionable things under Bendis's pen, such as unleashing her pheromones on Hawkeye shortly after his breakup with Mockingbird.  Cause that's so in character for her.  Blegh.
Posted by bunkerbuster05

I'm in the minority. I generally enjoy Bendis' work. Sure it's not all wins, but I think the guy can really write group interaction well. Also I'm a huge Norman Osborn fan, so anything with him is a pick up for me. His mini-series is pretty great.

marvel ran out of idea's, pity. just like dc.

Posted by goldenkey

This is good.  I liked the whole Dark Avengers concept as did a lot of people since the rating were high the whole time.  The Siege sucked but that rest of Dark Avengers stories were good.
